Hello friends! I do hope NONE of you are under the weather today! However, if you are... consider this my card to you!
I played again with this month's release from Our Daily Bread Designs. I used the April Showers stamp set for my sentiment, and stamped it with Baja Breeze ink, then cut it with one of the GORGEOUS dies in the Custom Layered Lacey Squares Die set. I then took a scrap of design paper and cut the next size up from this die set, embossed it and then ran my white craft ink pad over the raised areas. I heat embossed white embossing powder on those areas, leaving a shiny edge with some of the original peachy colored paper peeking through. I like how it emphasizes the pattern of the die cut and the shimmer it gave. I then cut the lacey largest die cut piece from white and embossed it. I popped up each layer with dimensional tape and adhered it to a simple layout of design paper from Pebbles Garden Party. I'm so in love with this paper and it's so cheery for a showery April! Mine was a gift from a sweet friend, but you can find it in AC Moore. I used a scrap of design paper from my last card and cut an umbrella from it using the Umbrella Die, and sponged it to give just a little more definition. I cut some heart raindrops from the Clouds and Raindrops Die set and added them to my upper left corner. I then took a Clear Wink of Stella pen and colored the umbrella and the heart raindrops. I love the shimmer that gave, although the photo does not show it. It's raining here again today... basically all week we are having showers, so no great photos, but a great time to stamp! The little ribbon with rose is from Micheal's bridal department. I'm loving how small it is and how easily it fits a card without overwhelming it.
Well that's it for today! It's a pretty simple design but hopefully will bring some cheer to one who's not feeling well!
